Paisley Fields Band
Paisley Fields are a queer country band from Brooklyn, NY, unapologetic about pushing boundaries and seeking inspiration in the unexpected. Though lead singer James Wilson is inspired by country musicians like Dolly Parton and Gram Parsons, he wanted Paisley Fields' lyrics to reflect a modern world.
Pittsburgh City Paper writes, "While Paisley Fields have a good bit in common with contemporary country — rich production, songs with pop bones and twangy accents — the band probably won't be touring with Toby Keith anytime soon. They're a refreshing change from country radio."
Paisley Fields tour frequently, and their latest album, Oh These Urban Fences, is described by No Depression as "a labor of love that demands your attention.”
Drake Jensen
A different kind of Country, a different kind of Man. Critically acclaimed recording artist, advocate for Equality, Diversity, Humanity. Cape Breton, the World.
Drawing on his ability to spin a yarn, wind it around a note and tie it all with honest emotion and raw passion, Jensen's music is driving him ever forward, on the road to recognition as a dexterous country vocalist and a force to be reckoned with in the country music genre.
Patrick Masse
Canadian Country Artist, Patrick Masse is a Vancouver native, and a constant in the Canadian Country music scene since releasing his first album "Get There From Here". Patrick's second album, "Mend the Man" had charted singles and garnered him a nomination for the Ray MacAuley Memorial ‘Horizon’ BCCMA Award.

His latest single "Little Bit of Saturday" is produced by Kuya Productions, best known for their work with Alessia Cara, JRDN and Shawn Desmond.

Yarns is the musical project of composer Martin Dawagne. Rather than a collection of tracks, the songs of Yarns are a succession of sound paintings and meditative prose about escapism and removal.
